INGREDIENTS

SAUCE

  • 1 28 oz can Tomatoes, whole
  • 5 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Yellow onion, peeled and halved
  • To taste Salt

PASTA

  • For pasta water Salt
  • ¾ lb Penne pasta
  • For garnish Parmesan cheese, shaved
  • To taste Black pepper, freshly ground

METHOD

  • In a large saucepan, place tomatoes, butter, onion halves, and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Lower the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, stirring and crushing the tomatoes with a spoon occasionally, until droplets of fat appear on the surface of the tomatoes, about 45 minutes.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook penne pasta to al dente and drain.
  • Remove and discard the onion from the sauce. Break large chunks of tomato with a fork, if desired. Serve sauce over pasta with Parmesan cheese and black pepper.

NOTES

  • Grana Padano cheese makes a more affordable substitute for Parmesan 
  • Serve this sauce over any pasta noodle you wish 
  • This sauce freezes well, so feel free to double the batch and freeze half of it
